Mars Canada, one of the world’s leading food manufacturers, has chosen Ontario for a significant new step in the company’s growth.
On Wednesday in Bolton, Premier Kathleen Wynne joined Mars Canada leaders to open the Mars Food expanded plant. The 55,000-square-foot facility will increase Mars Food’s capacity to produce ready-to-heat Uncle Ben’s and Seeds of Change rice and grain products, and has created 37 new high-skilled, well-paying full-time jobs, in addition to the jobs created during construction.
Ontario’s highly skilled workforce, culture of innovation and competitive tax climate make it an ideal place for investments like Mars’ expansion. Already home to one of North America’s largest and most significant food and beverage processing sectors, Ontario is helping manufacturers compete globally by introducing legislation to streamline regulations, while preparing people across the province for the jobs of tomorrow.
Mars Canada is investing $77 million to expand its production capability in Bolton, which follows a $70 million expansion of its Newmarket factory earlier this year that created another 30 new highly skilled jobs.
